Pakistani gun collector living in Ontario arrested, alleged to be a security threat

Here is a prime piece of propaganda. Can you see how this article is written to introduce fear into the minds of unassuming readers? The lawyer says, “Police and intelligence agents are calling people” and “People are petrified.” Can you see how this is used to inject fear and the idea of the police state into the minds of the masses? Be prepared, because the fear-mongers will be using last week’s tragic events against us.

In the words of Alex Jones, “There is a war on for your mind.” This is social programming in the media. Now you know. -LW

OTTAWA – Police have jailed a Pakistani gun collector living in Ontario, alleging he is a terrorist threat to Canada, his lawyer said on Thursday, days after attacks in which two Canadian soldiers were killed.

Muhammad Aqeeq Ansari, a 30-year-old software designer, was arrested on Monday on allegations he has ties to militants in Pakistan, has amassed an arsenal of firearms, and has expressed extreme views on Twitter, his lawyer, Anser Farooq, said.

Ansari, who does not have Canadian citizenship, is being charged under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act with being a danger to the security of Canada, Farooq said. He faces deportation.

Farooq, who has defended other clients on terrorism-related charges, said he has received numerous calls from people who have been contacted by police and intelligence since the attacks last week that killed one soldier in Ottawa and another in Quebec.

The RCMP declined to comment. The Globe and Mail newspaper was first to report on Ansari’s arrest.

“People are petrified,” Farooq said. “Since the attacks, the RCMP really seems to be out in force.”

An official at the Maplehurst Correctional Complex in Milton, Ontario, where Ansari is being held, said Ansari would face an immigration hearing there on Friday.

Ansari surrendered 10 firearms to authorities last year, including rifles and several handguns as part of a plea bargain to obtain a conditional discharge on charges of illegally storing lawfully acquired firearms. Those proceedings did not include allegations of terrorism, the lawyer who represented him in that case, Ed Burlew, told Reuters.

“I’m surprised he’s now facing immigration charges,” Burlew said. “There was never any allegation in last year’s charges of violence, or potential violence, and if there had been we would never have been able to reach that deal,” he said, describing Ansari as a “polite, naive, nerdy guy who liked guns”.

Canadian police have been under scrutiny for their handling of suspected extremists since last week’s attacks, and law enforcement officials have asked for additional powers to investigate and arrest extremists in Canada.

Police say the attacks were committed by radical Muslim converts inspired by Islamic State. Both assailants were shot dead by security officials.

On Ansari’s Twitter account, he describes himself as a “Convicted Radical (ConRad) xD. Gamer, Sleeper… Not used to taking anything seriously…. seriously.”

VT’s Scathing Report on MH17: Working Group Established [video]

MH17 Working Group Established

So Far, the Winner is ICTS and Schipol Airport, “Crotch Bomber” Redux

 

… by  Gordon Duff   and  Jim Dean,  VT Editors

with a cast of about a dozen

 

[ Note:   Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaly Yarema told Ukrainian Pravda newspaper on Friday, “Militias in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics do not have Ukrainian air defense missile systems Buk and S-300 at their disposal”…”After the passenger airliner was downed, the military reported to the president that terrorists do not have our air defense missile systems Buk and S-300,” the general prosecutor said. “These weapons were not seized.”

“The Russians did it” story has crashed and burned. The the media overkill…”killed it”, all of them playing off the same talking points notes, no one even bothering to ask the most basic investigative journalist questions like “Show me the evidence you have.”

Who do you know, what country, that has a track record of pulling that kind of media and sock puppet politician coordination off whenever they want to, having them all singing like they are in a choir? ]

 

SlaughterWe have found one engine damaged.  It initially looked like an air to air missile hit it.  We see signs of fire but there is a question as to whether damage is consistent with a shape charge from an air to air missile.  Input from qualified folks welcomed as always.

The BUK is off the table.  We have reviewed it extensively and an S300 is capable but not a BUK.  It “says” it will do it but experts have ruled otherwise.  We have tons of supporting material already.

Additionally, were a ground launched missile used, we would have had sat [satellite] photos already.  If we get them later, it will mean they have been cooked.

From Rense.com, sent in by Jeff Rense:

This plane is intact.  Ours would have fallen in pieces based on wreckage.

Human intel on the ground has given us much.  We are taking our time and want more.  The YouTube is very telling, engine on fire.  However, the wreckage indicates bomb thus far.   We, however, aren’t interested in guessing ourselves to death. We leave that to the slime media.

We have issues involving one Israeli jet from Azerbaijan.  We have issues about ICTS in Schipol.  We have issues about air traffic controllers in Kiev.  We have issues about SU 27s trailing the plane.  We have issues about “foreign” advisors in Kiev with the military who moved on the airport tower.

We are also looking for an AWAC in the area.  The bomb or whatever would have needed an AWAC or an F15 with advanced radar to time the crash.

Thus far the Putin assassination story that RT ran seems “off.”  We can do nothing with it so we won’t deal with it now.

What can’t be ignored is the manipulated media and the politicians who are making asses of themselves.  They are pointing a gun right at Israel.  The smell is overwhelming.  Next, someone will ask how many Jews were on board.  As the plane was leaving the Netherlands for a medical conference, I would think the number to be substantial, 20 or more.  Is this a fair way to look at this?  Perhaps that should be discussed as well.

And who would destroy two fully packed airliners of a country they were angry with, to make an example? Is this enough to go on?  In reality, it is more powerful, following a cover up, than any other evidence.  Everything else can be faked.  The “stupidity” is for real. Yes, they are that stupid.

Validate the Evidence Before You Blast the Messengers Over Flight MH17 [video]

Thanks, Todd.

There is a video within the following article that everyone who is interested in understanding the so-called “shoot-down” of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 needs to see.

As always in the cabal’s false flag events, there is a great deal of conflicting evidence… evidence that simply does NOT support the story the western war mongers are so quick to toss out to us, and it means that what we currently have is a complex labyrinth with plenty of dead ends that must be navigated to reach the truth. That takes time.

There are people who suspect their loved ones were killed in this act of war, and they can get angry when those of us who’ve analyzed many previous false flags suggest it was faked.

Trust us—we understand your pain, but it COULD have a better ending than you imagine. We just don’t know yet.

What we DO know is… it’s a psyop. The US cabal orchestrated this event for several political reasons, and the truth is usually the opposite of what they tell us via their corrupt mainstream media. They have very effective propaganda machines designed to shape public opinion and they’ve been telling people what to think for decades. Don’t allow them to manipulate you.

Before you decide what happened, please spend a week or two examining the evidence, because it is looking like the plane was not Flight 17 from Amsterdam, and that this plane was not truly “shot down”, but we won’t know for sure just yet.

Malaysian Flight 370 disappeared on March 8th, and we STILL don’t know what happened or where the plane and passengers are. We can only speculate, so don’t expect an answer about Flight 17 in a couple of days.

If the wreckage they’re showing us in the Ukraine has bodies, or dummies, or both, and it’s true the bodies have been drained of blood and are in advanced stages of decomposition, then how could it have been Flight 17 that was to have just left Amsterdam? This suggests staging of a crash site, would you agree?

If it is NOT Flight 17, then where IS Flight 17—the plane, passengers and crew?

The clues we’ve been given just don’t add up, so someone is lying, covering up, and seeding the news with false evidence. Many of us know WHY; we just have to ascertain HOW.

We already know the cabal has paid mercenaries to invade the Ukraine to provoke WWIII, so do we believe the images and intel we get from there? How credible are they?

There are a lot of very intelligent people out there analyzing this, collecting intelligence from reliable sources and telling us what they can, as they can. We’ll just have to be patient. Nothing is what it seems.

Please see the following article and watch the video about “wagging the dog” for some intelligent questions and observations and I think you will agree that there is something not right about the whole event. ~ BP

Recent False Flag Fake Shootings Exposed in One Video—12 Minutes

Thanks to Extraterrestrials.ning.com for sharing.

Keeping it light for Friday… I  think I’m cracking under the pressure.

For those who are just realizing something odd has been going on in America and don’t trust the mass media… congratulations! Here’s your tinfoil hat. You’re gonna need it. There are actually two videos.

Oh, come on, it’s fun! Welcome to the party. We’re celebrating the exposure of the Illuminati. Think of it as their ‘coming out’ party. Cheers! Up your bucket! 

But be forewarned… once you’re part of the club, it’s like ‘Hotel California’. “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave”, because you will never see your reality the same way again. You may feel isolated and paranoid, but we’re here for you.  ;0)

P.S.   Don’t forget there’s a tin foil hat creativity contest next Thursday. You can win an AK47 and a free membership to your local militia.

WARNING: SARCASM AND LANGUAGE ALERT – Use discretion, as always, but he’s right about anarchy.
Def: absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual, regarded as a political ideal.

 

As for Santa Barbara—someone covered that one in more detail in a gentler manner. See below.

The point is, these events are all planned well in advance. They often advertize for actors on Craig’s List, for crying out loud. I’ll bet not many Americans know their government is in the entertainment business. Your tax dollars at work.

NOW who are the insane ones? Those in the tin foil hats? Or the government?

The feds really believe we’re all imbeciles. Once someone shows us the evidence at the ‘crime scene’, though, we know we don’t have to be forensic experts to see it couldn’t possibly have happened the way the lamestream media talking heads claimed. 

This Tuber actually gives us a taste of Forensics 101, and be sure to hang around for the 10:00 minute mark. He actually said “brainwash”. Nice one, Holder.

Since gun and ammo sales are waaaaay up in the USA, I don’t think your campaign is working.

Even Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has warned Americans not to give up their guns.

We get it. Americans’ guns are the only thing between them and open season on the American people; martial law, FEMA camps, and slaughter by the corrupt side of the fed’s military and now highly trained police forces in select cities.

These Tubers are begging us all to wake up and see the truth and share it. Will you share? I just did.  ~ BP

 

Secret Space War XVII: Who Runs the New NSA Facility at Bluffdale, UT?

I missed this until KP shared, so here’s our next installment, a little late. Perfect Sunday reading.

The author reminds us…I am not allowed to tell you that what is disclosed in this article is true beyond any shadow of a doubt. But just like me you are allowed to believe anything you want about the information which is presented in this article based on what seems plausible to you in light of numerous prior public testimonies during Dr. Greer’s Disclosure Project.”

Many of my readers know that most—if not all—of the following IS true.

In addition to The Disclosure Project, of course, there was the Citizens’ Disclosure Hearing (click to see a clip) at the National Press Club in Washington in April/May 2013, which was brilliant.

For ten days a panel comprising former members of US Congress, among others, heard the testimony of countless pilots, military men, UFO researchers, witnesses and insiders from multiple countries who told us in plain language that various extraterrestrial races are indeed here and have been visiting our planet for decades. (millennia, actually)

Various Galactics are currently engaging Humanity in both positive and negative ways. There is no question in millions of minds that we are not alone. We’re just waiting for the rest of Humanity to catch up.

It’s maddening to think that we dumbed-down humans are the only race who aren’t zipping around in space and from dimension to dimension. We’ve been grounded by the selfish, evil races who have controlled our fake reality for eons.

Reality is NOTHING like what we have been told. It’s time we realized who we really are and made our initial forays into the stars, whence we came. 

So let’s get with the program, grow up, assume our true identities and join the rest of the cosmos. Many of us are yearning to go home.  May The Force be with you.  ~ BP 

July 7, 2014

by Preston Jamesutah-data-center-entrance

 

You are not allowed to know what goes on at the new secret NSA Super-spy Center at Bluffdale, Utah, or what goes on at the Secret Deep Underground Base it is connected to.

Nor are you allowed to know who is behind the New Beyond-Black NSA, who actually runs it, or what their Secret Agenda is.

And neither are you allowed to know who runs the secret Deep Underground Base it is connected to at Richfield, Utah, or what their Beyond-black Secret Agenda is.

If you do not have some basic knowledge of the Secret Space War that is ongoing now and the basic, real facts that have already been released proving its existence, you are probably wasting your valuable time reading this article because it will seem far too incredulous to you.

The actual facts about these matters may be so astounding and so disturbing that unless they were proved by major Mass Media public displays of actual facts such that folks were confident they were true, most that read this article without any background or actual experience in Secret Space War matters are unlikely to believe much of it.

The only way the public at large would ever be able to process this information is if the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM), the USG’s secret but official Propaganda Dispenser, covered this story as fact after USG ordered it to do so and released a major supporting set of facts publicly to many witnesses, and live on camera, facts that were indisputable.

There is alleged to be a major Split in the Top Echelon of the Secret Shadow Government (SSG).

It has been alleged by insiders that the Top Policy-makers who run the Secret Shadow Government (SSG) are split in their beliefs about what the effect would be on the public if there was complete disclosure of the Secret Space War phenomena and the numerous groups of Alien ETs.

It is alleged that there has also been a deep split in the Top Policy-Makers of the SSG about what would happen if the public ever found out for certain about the true Agenda of the new Bluffdale NSA base and the attached deep underground base at Richfield Utah.

Allegedly the “Oldest Ones” believe that disclosure would create complete distrust of the USG forever.  And allegedly the “Younger Ones” believe that the public already completely distrusts the USG and coming clean with full disclosure would help restore confidence and trust in the USG if it was done properly.

Perhaps you may want to assume that there are some very high officials in the Secret Shadow Government (SSG) that want these facts to be disclosed to the public in successive steps that are slow enough to allow systematic acceptance in small steps without creating public panic.

And perhaps you would be correct if you assume that this type of disclosure is already in process.

You may be correct if you perhaps assume that the information being presented in this article is due to this split in the SSG and has been provided by the “Younger Ones” of the SSG, but I cannot assure you of that at this time.

But here is the kicker, there may be another off-planet based party that is pressuring the “Younger Ones” to disclose within a certain time limit or they have promised to take direct action themselves in public displays which will create immediate full disclosure.

And it may be that this particular off-planet entity tends to be peaceful and benevolent to humans while being an age-old arch enemy of another previously off-planet entity that is anti-human which has invaded, infiltrated and hijacked Planet Earth by use of a secret worldwide Occult Network of Luciferians that call themselves “Illuminati.”

If this information is in fact correct, be certain that at this time under ordinary circumstances you would never be allowed to have access to this kind of disclosure information because it is still completely forbidden by operative policies of the SSG still in place.

I am not allowed to tell you that what is disclosed in this article is true beyond any shadow of a doubt. But just like me you are allowed to believe anything you want about the information which is presented in this article based on what seems plausible to you in light of numerous prior public testimonies during Dr. Greer’s Disclosure Project.

Certainly it is very interesting that so many recent history channel programs on Alien ETs visiting Planet Earth and some living in Deep Underground Bases.

Up until several years ago any leakage or sharing of this information would result in an immediate and lethal sanction, referred to by insiders as “Termination with Extreme Prejudice” (which means final with no appeal possible aka a visit from DOD “wetboys” or from real Alien ETs, also known as the “Men in Black”).

This deep split in the SSG has occurred because the “Old Ones” are now approaching death and their previously immense power is waning. New SSG coalitions are being formed and junior members are now organizing to fill the void.

Many of the worldwide systems of control these Senior SSG Members instituted are eroding fast, and more effective new ones must be created to replace them if they are going to be able to maintain control. It has been suggested that the “Younger Ones” do not share the same NWO Luciferian plans of the “Old Ones” or their memberships in a world wide occult Luciferian Network.

Psychologists Explain 9/11 Denial Despite Hard Scientific Evidence [video]

Most of us reading this are no longer in denial, and once you have done the research and see the facts for yourself and the science and physics is laid out for you, you wonder how you could have ever believed the lies… but we’re not all there yet.

It can be really frustrating for us and we may want to yell, “How can an intelligent person like you believe that load of hooey the corrupt government is slinging?” Many of us know that discussing truths people are not ready to hear can result in some angry exchanges, resentment, and being ostracized. It’s hard being awake.

The Rethink 911 campaign has been successful in rousing a few people from their blissful reverie, but we still have a long way to go.

Denial is a very dangerous state to live in, because while all hell is breaking lose, our inner voice is saying, “it can’t be”. And the longer we are asleep, the more embarrassing it is when we wake up.

To refrain from saying, “I told you so” will be one of our biggest challenges, I think.  ~ BP

 

Seven psychologists plus author David Ray Griffin, Ph.D., provide insights on why so many people are in total denial regarding the truth about 9/11 despite “nine years of hard scientific evidence that disproves the government theory about what happened on September 11.” Trauma, fear, pride, and cognitive dissonance (information that contradicts beliefs about our worldview) are among the reasons given for why people can’t handle the truth about 9/11.

Below is a transcript of the key parts of the video:

Why are people resistant to looking at the hard evidence regarding 9/11?

Marti Hopper, Ph.D (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

At this point, we have nine years of hard scientific evidence that disproves the government theory about what happened on September 11.  Yet, people continue to be either oblivious to the fact that this information exists or completely resistant to looking at this information.  So, the question becomes: Why?

Why is it that people have so much trouble hearing this information? From my work, I think we would be remiss not to look at the impact of trauma…

As we know, the horrors of what happened on 9/11 were televised all over the world. They were televised, in fact, live.  We witnessed the deaths of almost 3,000 of our fellow Americans.  We know that this had a very severe and traumatic impact on a majority of the population.   I, myself, cried for weeks after September 11.

A friend of mine, who is a psychologist in practice here in Boulder, said that her case load increased tremendously after 9/11.  People who she had not seen in ten years were coming back into her practice.

So, I think it’s safe to say that collectively, as a nation, because of what happened on September 11, we experienced trauma.

9/11 Truth Conflicts with Our Worldview, Causing Cognitive Dissonance

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Why do people resist this information – the information that shows that the official story about 9/11 cannot be true?  What I’ve learned is that, as humans, each of us has a world view.  That worldview is usually formed, in great part, by the culture that we grow up in.

When we hear information that contradicts our worldview, social psychologists call the resulting insecurity cognitive dissonance. For example, with 9/11 we have one cognition, which is the official story of 9/11 – what our government told us, what our media repeated to us over and over – that 19 Muslims attacked us.

On the other hand, we have what scientists, researchers, architects, and engineers are now beginning to tell us, which is that there is evidence that shows that the official story cannot be true.  So now, we’ve lost our sense of security.  We are starting to feel vulnerable.  Now we’re confused.

Our Psychological Defenses Kick In When Our Beliefs Are Challenged

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

9/11 truth challenges our most fundamental beliefs about our government and about our country.  When your beliefs are challenged or when two beliefs are inconsistent, cognitive dissonance is created.  9/11 truth challenges the beliefs that our country protects and keeps us safe, and that America is the good guy….

When your beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to that, our psychological defenses kick in and they protect us from these emotions.  Denial, which is probably the most primitive psychological is the one most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged.

It’s Easier to Deny the Truth

Danielle Duperet, PhD:

America is a powerful nation.  It has never been attacked.  We were confident.  We felt secure.  And all of a sudden, that security collapsed.  People started to be fearful with all of the rumors, with all of the news.  People didn’t know what to think, which is a very, very uncomfortable state to be in.  Eventually, our mind shuts off.   Just like when a computer is overloaded, our minds get overloaded.  We can’t handle it anymore and we shut down. It’s easier to deny it and move on with our lives.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

What some will tend to do is deny the evidence that is coming our way and stick to the original story, the official story.  We try to regain our equilibrium that way. Another thing that we can do is decide to look at the conflicting evidence and be sincere and open minded, and look at both sides of the issue.  And, then make up our own mind about what reality is.

We Will Do Just About Anything to Defend our Mental and Emotional Homes

Dorthy Lorig, M.A., Counseling Psychologist:

If we can think of our worldview as sort of being our mental and emotional home, I think that all of us will do just about anything to defend our homes, to defend our families.  I see that with people.  I saw that with myself when my brother tried to talk to me about it: “Don’t mess with me. Don’t mess with my home.  Don’t mess with my comfort with how things are.”

About a week later, I read a lengthy article by professor Griffin about why he believes the official account of 9/11 cannot be true.  It was a very well researched article.  I was in my office at the time.  I sat there and felt my stomach churning. I thought that maybe I was going to be sick. And, I leaped out my chair and ran out the door and took a long walk around the block – around several blocks – and just broke down.

I understand now that my worldview about my government being in some way my protector, like a parent, had been dashed.  It was like being cast out into the wilderness. I think that is the closest way to describe that feeling.

I sobbed and I sobbed.  I felt that the ground had completely disappeared beneath my feet.  And, I knew at some point during the walk that at some point I was going to have to become active educating other people about this.  For me to retain any sense of integrity, I was going to have to take some action.  I couldn’t just let something like this go.

 9/11 Truth Challenges Our Fundamental Beliefs About the World

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

Many people respond to these truths in a very deep way.  Some have a visceral reaction like that have been punched in the stomach.  To begin to accept the responsibility that the government was involved is like opening Pandora’s Box.  If you open the lid and peak in a little bit, it’s going to challenge some of your fundamental beliefs about the world.

Initial Reactions to Hearing Contradictory Evidence about 9/11

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Following are some of those spontaneous initial reactions to hearing the contradictory evidence about 9/11:

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

I don’t want to know the truth or I will become too negative and psychologically go downhill.

I’m not sure that I want to know.  If this is true then up will be down and down will be up. My life will never be the same.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Fran, I refuse to believe that that many Americans can be that treasonous.  Someone would have talked.

Initial Reactions are Based on BELIEFS, NOT Scientific Facts

But these are BELIEFS.  They are NOT scientific fact.  But, these beliefs do KEEP US FROM LOOKING AT THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE.

9/11 Truth Contradicts People’s Paradigm

David Ray Griffin, Ph.D., professor/author:

You have empirical people who will simply say: look at the evidence and if it is convincing, I will change my mind.

Other people are paradigmatic people. They have a paradigm.  They say, this is the way the world works and I am convinced that this is the way that the world works.  9/11 doesn’t fit into that paradigm.  So, I don’t have to look at the evidence.  It’s paradigmatic.

And then there is a third type of person that we often call wishful thinkers.  I call it wishful and fearful thinking.  So, they simply will not believe something that they fear to be the truth.  And, I find that to be, maybe, the most powerful factor of people rejecting 9/11 truth and not even entertaining the evidence.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

The Truth is Not Bearable

So, whenever we say “I refuse to believe”, we can be sure that the evidence that’s coming our way is not bearable and it is conflicting with our worldview much too much.

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

Denial protects people from this kind of anxiety.

A Common Emotion is Fear

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

As I thought about all of these responses, I realized that what is common to every one of them is emotion of fear.  People are afraid of being ostracized, they are afraid of being alienated, they are afraid of being shunned.  They are afraid of their lives being inconvenienced – they’ll have to change their lives. They are afraid of being confused.  They are afraid of psychological deterioration.  They are afraid of feeling helpless and vulnerable.  And, they are afraid that they won’t be able to handle the feelings coming up.

When Presented with the Truth, Those in Denial Become Angry, Indignant, Offended,  and Ridicule the Messenger

None of want to feel helpless and vulnerable.  So, we want to defend ourselves.   And, the way that we often do that is with anger.  Then we become angry.  And, when we become angry, then we become indignant.  We become offended.  We want to ridicule the messenger. We want to pathologize the messenger.  And, we want to censor the messenger.

Raise Awareness with Gentle Dialogue and Gentle Questioning

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist)

So, how can we overcome this resistance in denial?  The first thing is to meet people where they are at.

John Freedom, M.A., Personal Development Counselor:

One thing is that we need to raise people’s awareness about this – what I would call gentle dialogue and gentle questioning…  It doesn’t work to challenge people’s beliefs or immediately tell them “I know the truth about 9/11.”  A good way is to ask open ended questions that lead to open dialogue and discussion about it.

Danielle Duperet, PhD:

One of the ways to deal with the trauma is to find the answers.  That’s why I think it is of such importance to have a comprehensive investigation.

Pride is Another Reason People Deny 9/11 Truth

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

I believe that to become the type of country that we think we are, we have to face some of the things that are not as we think they are… Thinking that we are above such things – that it could happen in other countries, but it couldn’t happen here – that’s a lack of humility.  That’s excessive pride.  As, so not being able to see our dark side or our weaknesses is the most dangerous thing.

David Ray Griffin, Ph.D:

The observation that pride is one of the basic human flaws is absolutely correct.  This is especially true for Americans because we for a long time looked at other nations and said, “They are in such bad shape.  But, luckily we don’t have those problems.  We don’t have leaders that would do those things that were done in the Soviet Union, or done in Germany, or done in Japan… This is a type of pride that Americans have.

A feature of American history that makes particularly liable to this pride is this notion of exceptionalism – that America is the exceptional nation.  That began from the beginning as this country was formed.

People would say that there was so much evil in the European countries, so much cheating, so much lying, so much using the people for the ruler’s purposes.  But not in America! We have leaders who are free from those sins.  This has made 9/11 particularly difficult for Americans.

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

Everyone can make mistakes.  But, our ideals and our principles get us back on track.

John Freedom, M.A., Personal Development Counselor:

9/11 is One of the Defining Issues of Our Time 

This is one of the defining issues of our time.

Questioning is Patriotic

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

So, we need to understand that questioning is patriotic.  Questioning is what we are supposed to do.  That’s our duty.

The Real Perpetrators Must be Held Accountable

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

When we come to the national level, when something like 9/11 happens, we need to be sure that we have a real investigation into who the perpetrators are.  And, then we need to make sure that those people are held legally accountable. It’s part of the healing process on an individual level and the collective level.
